The History of the Devil
The History of the Devil is a classic historical and religious book universally considered one of
Daniel Defoe’s greatest works of non-fiction. The book was first published in 1726 and made an
immediate impact on English literature, society and the ecclesiastical community in the early
18th century and continues to enrich humanity as a faithful source of historical and biblical truth
The History of the Devil cleverly unfolds the actions, devices, and evil nature of Satan and his
host of devils against God and mankind throughout the history of the world. Defoe divides
the book into two parts: Ancient, or the time from before the creation of the universe to the
coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ; and Modern, or from the time of Christ and establishment
of the Christian Church to the present day. His style is one that uniquely blends serious biblical
principles and history with lighter satirical narrative, especially when dealing with mankind’s
many false presuppositions about the Devil, and clearly delineates when each, or both, is
applicable to the subject of discussion.
